Phillauri and Pari

Apart from NH10, their other productions like ‘Phillauri’ and ‘Pari’ proved their ability to dabble with three different genres – thriller, romance and horror with a distinct and differential content pitch for audiences.

Pari, in fact, is all set for a Tamil remake. It also got a Russian release. With this, it has become the first ever female-led film from India to open in the country.

“Pari became a success because of its script and the willingness of a superstar to take a huge risk to back content that was aimed at redefining the horror genre in India. Everyone has taken notice of this gutsy decision. Pari will soon have a Tamil remake. Quality horror stories work in this market and the producers here have loved Pari. The offer on the table is a big one too and only adds to the revenue of Pari. An announcement is expected to happen as soon as the deal is locked. It is a huge success for Anushka,” a source confirmed as reported by Indian Express.
